I am so grateful a few weeks ago I got a chance to see Miss Helen. George was doing my taxes. I didn't know it would be my last time seeing her. I told her I wasn't going to hug her because of the coronavirus. She nod at me and smiled. This is how I will remember her. She was the last original Queen from Powers Ave. God bless her soul!❤❤❤

I will always cherish the memories of talking with Mother Helen during my visits in Jackson. It was an honor to participate in her centennial and 103rd birthday celebrations.

Down the street from Ms. Helen, I grew up on Powers Avenue with my brothers Freddie and Tyrone. We all admired Ms. Helen. Our family sends condolences to Danny Boy, George, and David. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
